But I'm grateful that so many of us are staying home, staying safe and in doing so, keeping each other safe."

"I want to take time to acknowledge and honor the sacrifices of those who work every day, taking care of their communities in this time of need and uncertainty," she continued, before shouting out first responders, doctors, nurses, midwives, store clerks, janitors, postal workers, pharmacists, delivery workers and more, whom she named "the heroes making our daily lives possible."
